Rio Tinto is expected to incur a backlash against its remuneration report at the London leg of its annual general meeting on 9 April. Outgoing chairman Simon Thompson is likely to be the main target of investors’ wrath in the wake of the scandal over the destruction of ancient indigenous rock shelters at Juukan Gorge in Western Australia. The scandal resulted in the departure of three senior executives – including former CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques – who will receive lucrative severance payments. Rio Tinto will hold its Australian annual general meeting on 8 May.
